Offices


Baton RougeGeolocation: 30.4279, -91.0076

The Baton Rouge office is an evolution of a geotechnical and geoenvironmental practice started more than 25 years ago. In 1985, Victor Donald, P.E., joined Ware Lind Engineers to start its first branch office. Ware Lind was a geotechnical engineering firm established in 1961 in Jackson, Miss. Taking a 12-month lease in a 1,500 square foot office warehouse, the office grew to more than 30 staff within five years. In the early 90s the firm became Aquaterra Engineering, Inc., as a result of an acquisition by a Fortune 500 company. From the time of this acquisition until 2000, the firm performed predominantly environmental projects. In 2001, the geotechnical side of the practice was reactivated, and it began to thrive, becoming a well established geotechnical consultant in Baton Rouge. In 2009, with the merger of Aquaterra into Terracon, the Baton Rouge office enhanced its stature as the premier geotechnical, CMET, and environmental consultant in Baton Rouge.

Interstate 10 WideningGeolocation: 30.5694, -91.0969
Interstate 10 is being widened from two lanes in each direction to three lanes in each direction with a 54-inch high center median single barrier or double barriers. Dual existing bridges over Wards Creek Diversion will also be widened. The bridge replacement is complicated by the extreme skew of the bridges to the Kansas City railroad track and the existence of a major high voltage electrical transmission line along the tracks with a pole located between the bridges that must remain in place. Terracon has been retained as the quality control firm for this Design-Build project under Boh…

LSU Tiger StadiumGeolocation: 30.412, -91.1852
Terracon has been retained to provide Construction Materials Testing and Special Inspection services for the $72 million South End Zone expansion to Louisiana State University (LSU) Tiger Stadium.
